A Japanese -born, New York-based Artist




She is an NYU’s Interactive Telecommunication Program and an Eyebeam Resident, a BRIC Media Art Fellow and a Metropolitan Museum Media Lab Researcher. She is selected to be a Triangle Art Association Workshop and Bronx Museum AIM program.

Her working experience as a graphic designer and an improvisational visual artist in the underground experimental audiovisual scene in New York strongly influenced her artistic practice, shifting it from one-way communication to the audience into a fully interactive experience that uses technology to establish a moment of co-creation with the public.

Her work creates what she describes as the symphony of light. Creating minimalist geometric light and sound with visual sensors ( leap motion, Kinect, and ps2 controller) in the dark space are ultimately an optical performance that experiments with improvisational communication and immediate engagement with the audience in real time.

Her work has shown in numerous international venues and festivals, including Metropolitan Museum, the American Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Art and Design, NY Hall of Science, the Hammer Museum, San Francisco Art Institute, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Museo Regional de Guadalajara, Matadero Madrid, Eyebeam, Harvestworks, and International Biennial Contemporary Art ULA-2010, Mapping Festival, Mutek, Dumbo Art Festival and among others.
